On The Media

Warm

warm we link arms before the brawl breaks our ranks
we touch again     ineffectual   fist to ineffectual face
we are touched again to be peeled apart    sprayed 
toward sobbing   and held again in rapturous pain   do you remember
now   singing by torchlight?   do you remember the strange sounds
of which we are capable?   the moan the mutter
the laugh around campfire and when campfires tamp
and glow   and our bodies   just cool of a blister
kind and momentary   sister to sister
brother to brother   all else like a staircase rises up
or helps us descend   in time
it is a struggle   to keep cool   to fight with
one's own fire   the necessary stoke and recoil.

“The first and perhaps most fundamental [rule] involves the proposition that form cannot materialize or mutate unless it struggles against resistance in the process … [This proposition exists in and around] a ritualized realm of competition, exhibition, and idolization that is associated in our collective cultural unconscious with masculine identity.” Nancy Spector

“I lie out / dragging myself forward with bear-knives in my fists.” Galway Kinnell

 

      i begin to the next 
groan

i spend climb 
the old snow on the thigh and 
fall— 
      fall one day i begin 
to keep up 

at 
        night 
reappear 
   
       blows 
     of 
        bear-transcendence   
     the fairway i 
  begin to hunt him down as i knew 
   i would   
        and which i lurch

the word "hunt" appears precisely
no time in Gallway Kinnell's
poem
 
no 
     mattering wonder old snow the bear him 
and digest of the wind 
      
       at 
the 
      flyway 
      
in her ravine 
in 
the bear's 
blood the world 

at 
dismayal
   i awaken 
i 
          tottering wonder 
old snow the dismayed 

   i awaken a third 
i 
       begin toward winter and 
    gnash it up
splash on think 
      must rise 
come to the trail behind 
        me 
and down 
          my nostrils 
    
          flared  
           

and which 
       way to 
   begin the seventh day

“As banked clouds / are swept apart / by the wind at dawn, / the cry of the first wild geese / winging over the mountain” — Saigyo (Source photo: Todd Heisler/New York Times)

among us knew many boys
a half dozen? she was 
a retired pant and the fridge 
is full

The tech tee fridge 
is full of bedrooms
The window is open
To Hackensack 

will you jump on my trampoline?
The lights have sparrows and 
among us knew many boys
a half dozen? said she was 

A crow alike at the phone; it's full
the dog refuses, we're out of 
phones; it's full of lights here's a snake origami, 
your will jumps on our fathers

Pressed pants and held 
us our mothers pressed porn
we knew many like her, loved 
them even, but who among us knew 

many boys
a half dozen? 
she was retired, hare
and crow calls alike

At the phone; it's full
the dog refuses, 
we're out of phone 
and full of lights 

here's a snake      
Your will jumps         
on our fathers
Pressed pants 
       
and Held us Our 
mothers Pressed porn star      
We knew many like her, loved 
even But whom among us knew 

boys
a half dozen?
she was a retired porn star.
We knew many boys and a hare

improv for problems, playoffs and plumbing [draft 2, 042220131826]

Tin helmet to the blindside crumbled 
Week-old Italian bread 
Crushed over fresh arugula  

Titan got hit.

His mind green jelly baby puree
Squishing squirt of hot butter candied
Prophet peppermint pate

Look up from the pain 
Airbus A380 sky streaming, lickable bright
Cotton confetti a candy grey cloud, giving up.
